From the same grouping as the ring I posted earlier. No markings. Reverse has a continuous ridge along the edges. Wierd plastic roller. Any and all comment are most welcome. Thanks, Al Hirschler in Dallas.

Once again, my pictures are shown in the reverse order than the way that I posted them.

The roller appears to be the type that goes with plastic EGAs.

Yup, early bakelite/plastic EGA nut and a lead wartime economy EGA.

And FWIW, hold on to that Bakelite nut/washer. They are tough to find by themselves and will complete out a Bakelite cover bird without one nicely.

Thank you VMI88 and Jeremiah for the info. Very interesting combination of lead and bakelite. Did the lead EGA's come that way or did they have a metal roller? Thanks again, Al.

They usually had a metal roller.

The two examples J mentions, you expect to see in use w/ the econo-emblems, a zinc roller on the left & thin flower roller on the right.
